What is Haute Couture Fashion Week?
He is the tailor Charles Frederick Worth who created the first haute couture house in 1858, located at 7, rue de la Paix, in Paris. Ever since a decree of January 23, 1945, the expression “haute couture” has become a legally protected designation, granted by the minister in charge of industry on the proposal of a committee headed by the Chambre Syndicale de la Couture. At the time, houses that could call themselves haute couture were entitled to specific advantages in terms of price and supply of raw materials.
How to get the haute couture label?
“Haute couture” is therefore a French name† awarded each year to houses of all nationalities that meet a number of specific criteria (such as handmade clothing for example) and adhere to the Chambre Syndicale de la Couture, which has its origins in the 19e century. The official calendar includes “members”, “corresponding members” and “guest members”.
Only sixteen houses enjoy member status (some of whom are no longer on the catwalk): Adeline André, Alexandre Vauthier, Alexis Mabille, Bouchra Jarrar, Chanel, Christian Dior, Franck Sorbier, Giambattista Valli, Givenchy, Jean Paul Gaultier, Julien Fournié, Maison Margiela, Maurizio Galante, Rabih Kayrouz, Schiaparelli, Stephane Rolland.
The Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture is part of a larger entity called Haute Couture and Fashion Federation† The latter’s main mission is to support emerging brands, perpetuate the already established houses, protect intellectual property and establish the calendar of collections presented in Paris.

Haute Couture Fashion Week takes place twice a year in Paris† Since the offered silhouettes do not require long production times, unlike ready-to-wear, they are presented just before each season, in January for the spring-summer collections and in July for the autumn-winter collections. During the two annual meetings haute couture organized in Paris, some thirty fashion houses show their exceptional creations that testify to true craftsmanship and contribute to their international influence. The collections presented there serve as a showcase for the houses: they are not produced in large numbers, but tailor-made for customers who request them. Each piece is therefore unique and meets the wishes (colours, details, length, etc.) of these exceptional consumers.
